Baywinde Senior Living was established 15 years ago to serve the needs of Rochester-area seniors.   Baywinde provides a safe, comfortable, and worry free lifestyle for seniors 62 and older, with three levels of care offered on the Webster campus. The Castle Pointe facility offers independent living and the Sage Harbour facility offers assisted living and memory care. Each area of Baywinde provides an environment for seniors who no longer wish to take care of a house or need more socialization all the way to dementia care.  Baywinde also offers short term care to give caregivers respite for a few days, weeks or more, without the lo ng term commitment.

The work of the PBC is accomplished through the dedication and hard work of committees formed to manage different projects throughout the year. As with all volunteer organizations, our success depends largely on the willingness of our membership to participate on these committees and make things happen. If you would like to volunteer to work on a specific committee that could benefit from your time and skill-set, contact us and we will connect you with the Committee Chair. 
Visit our list of currently active committees to see how your experience and expertise can be used.  We will find a project that suits your availability and interests!
